Collage: The Butterfly House

I bought a manual typewriter with my unexpected Rattle Ekphrastic Challenge windfall!

This means I get to experiment with text cut-outs from my own poetry. I have a quick-fire response to the Visual Verse Challenge that’s just up on their website. As a springboard, I’ve used a couple of lines from that poem to make a collage response.

The Butterfly House

Collage poem with vintage images and text

Scale is really important in collage images, and here I’m playing with content in a visual pun, as well as size.
